Bug Description

I dont have much information to give.

A bit more often when rotating components, but sometimes just a component move

Short-cut-key "R" / "M"

Not much help I know, but its crashing so often now, I just had to report it.

2 kicad process running on same PC at the same time.
I need to look on a previous design thats why I keep 2 open.
Only the one I work in crashes.

I can just verify that it crashes on move component.
Its consistently the move.

And it crashes very often.

2 kicads running at the same time.
I need to look at on pcb as a template, but I dont do any work in that other kicad.

@Nicholas-
Are you building this yourself or do you download it from somewhere?

Seth Hillbrand (sethh) wrote :

I have been trying with no luck to recreate on Debian.

@Nicholas, can you do the following:

1) Download ProcDump from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/procdump
2) Install ProcDump
3) Make a new directory C:\dumps
4) From command line run 'procdump -i C:\dumps'

The next time kicad crashes, it should log a stacktrace to C:\dumps that will help us to find and resolve this issue.

Nicholas Savenlid (nicholas-z) wrote :

I download on kicad homepage.
Nightlies.

Never build myself.
I will install the debug tools on Monday.

Weekend started.
Thanks for your help.

Nicholas Savenlid (nicholas-z) wrote :

Also it crashes with only 1 kicad open.
No different.

Hi

I did install it but it did not give a dump.

see pic from installation.

Can you run kicad using the procdump specifically?

`procdump -h kicad.exe C:\dumps\kicadhang.dmp`

This will output a dump file when Kicad stops responding rather than just crashing.

Nicholas Savenlid (nicholas-z) wrote :

Turns out you must:

1: start kicad
2: run procdum64 to start momitioring of kicad

I seems as, will see if it works when crashing

I have not done anymore intense layout work but it seems as when the
procdump is overlooking kicad activity it stays out of trouble.
We will see tomorrow if I get into some more layout work.

I did catch him now with procdump
Kicad doesn't crash as such it just stops responding.

Right, that's the message that your windows error logged. Windows is "helpfully" stopping KiCad in this case.

Do you have your symbols/footprints stored on your Google sync drive?

Nicholas Savenlid (nicholas-z) wrote :

I mirror my home laptop cad directory to google drive but not my work
laptop.

Its the work laptop that hangs.

But I sometimes zip the whole directory and swap between laptops, depending
which one I used last.

Maybe it has traces if google-drive meta data inside it ?

My cad files are under
C.\cad
designs, footprints, libs , 3d-models etc all I use for kicad except the
program itself.

So its the C.\cad i 7-zip and swap.

But its only when I move components in pcbnew that it hangs.

never during routing.

unclear if kicad even does any kind of disk-access when moving a component
in pcbnew.

OK, thanks!

Can you try running the 5.0.1 build and see if you experience the same issue?

I could.

is that safe to open designs with 5.0.1 ?

Yes it is safe. There will be no board format changes until after 5.1 is released.

@Nicholas-

I suspect that this may be clock related. I've pushed a commit to the master branch that I hope addresses this.

Note that because I am unable to reproduce, this is more of a shot in the dark. Would you please test tomorrow's (Oct 25) nightly build to see if it works better for you?

I do try the october 26

no crashes so far but the schematics editor is iffy in a number of ways
grid has changed
selected components dont show up as selected
drawing wires is somehow different (not as good)

Hi Nicholas-

Yes, 5.1 is a work in progress, so there are a number of interface things we are currently working on.

That said, I'd like to double-check that the issue in this bug report (pcbnew hanging/closing while moving components) has been resolved by the Oct 26 nightly. If so, then I'll work on porting the fix back to the 5.0.2 branch.

Thanks-
Seth

Yes it looks as if it is cleared,

PCBnew does not hang anymore AFAIK and that is good news.
